Jeff our head blogger/director of educational services/company health nut/funny man, okay he wears a lot of hats and….slashes apparently, decided to bring in a box containing approximately 1000 Comcast Kazoos from his truck. Pure comedy ensued. Jeff is a strong guy which may have worked against him in this scenario. The cardboard box that housed the kazoos was as far from structurally sound as the Hubble. Kids wouldn’t play with this box at Christmas after opening presents. It looked more like a sheet.
Jeff gave the box a quick glance, embraced it in what could only be described as a Hulk Hogan bear hug, and began his jaunt toward the top of the stairs. On stair three the trouble began. Jeff gave us a quick “I don’t think its gonna make it!”, not one second later an army of white kazoos began their march toward the concrete beneath the stairs. There was nothing anybody could do. Jeff scurried up the stairs to the solid platform that serves as the entrance to our office. The noise the falling kazoos made were only masked by the laughter of everybody in witness.
The kazoos were coming out from every corner of the box like a scene from a bad western when they rip down a wall at the sheriff’s station. Time stood still. It seemed like the kazoos were falling forever. The box did manage to save 75 of them whilst 925 found their fate underneath the stairs or on the steps themselves.
This might be one of those things where you had to be there but I am sure glad I was.
